45 Ulala | Dianthus & Checker White
The checkerboard pattern is one of the representative patterns of Japan and obtained its name from the fact it was used as a “hakama” for stage costumes by a popular kabuki actor in middle Edo period.
In addition, “Nadeshiko” has a neat and modest image like a pretty Japanese woman called “Yamato Nadeshiko”, the design has long appeared in Manyoshu, Makuranosoushi, and is also known as a flower loved by aristocrats. The shape of a cute blooming brush is compared to the smile of a girl, and the name of Nadeshiko is said to be derived from “caressed child” who was nurtured by a gentle touch.
It can be considered a pattern suitable for gifts to women.

Japanese traditional print patterns have many interesting aspects. For example, the “Ulala” series expresses the animals and plants of the four seasons as experienced in Japan; these patterns are also common in Kimono designs.
It is worth paying attention to the design and color usage. As well as the Japanese formal patterns, the series highlights checkerboards and lattices which are structured to maximize the charm of the wrapping. In addition, we stick to the color that is close to the modern lifestyle, and devised a color that is a point such as “fluorescent dye” and “pearl”.
One can also use it as a “gift”, “wrapping” to enjoy the four seasons. Although it is a classic pattern, it is a series that expresses a new “Japanese”.
